Baltimore prosecutor tosses 34 cases after officer seen planting evidence

WASHINGTON — Thirty-four criminal cases have been dismissed in Baltimore amid an investigation into the alleged planting of evidence by a Baltimore City police officer.

Twelve of the cases thrown out, according to Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, involved defendants who are now serving time for convictions.

In all, 123 cases are being reviewed by prosecutors in light of police body camera footage released by the public defender’s office.

Defense attorney’s claim the body-camera footage shows an officer planting a can with drugs at a crime scene before activating his camera. He’s then seen returning to the can and pulling out a baggie with white capsules.

The officer wearing the camera has been suspended by the police department. Two other officers heard and seen in the video have been placed on administrative duty.

They should all be charged with drug possession as well as the obvious crimes and abuse of public trust, fired, banned from law enforcement for life. Do we really want mercenaries with zero integrity carrying a gun and barking orders for the state?

Won't happen here, the video will get "Lost".

There is a thin blue line between good and evil. This type of BS has been going on for years, and you wonder why the black community is skeptical about police. One bad apple......Police need more accountability and less gang mentality looking out for your own. People thought Dave Chappell's "sprinkle some crack on him" was just comedy?

And this is another answer to your question/poll about when did police begin to get disrespect.

During a Friday afternoon news conference, Mosby also said another piece of body camera footage, not related to this case, has also come to light. Mosby wouldn’t elaborate on the video, but said it has been turned over to internal affairs division of the Baltimore Police Department.

The right thing to do.
Prosecutors cannot allow corrupt police officers to destroy the justice system.
